at religion first. we are talking about 23% of the evangelicals in colorado and only 2% mormon. the bottom line is can you take religion and does that directly correlate to votes? >> not only religion, but in the state of colorado, let's look at people there. they are fiercely independent. they maintain their strong values in their western traditions. if you look at the unemployment rate it is very high. mitt romney has momentum there. but if you look at the ballot initiatives -- >> one second. we will slow down. the unemployment high is not that high. it is 8%. i am just saying. >> exactly. >> we would like no one to be out of a job. >> exactly. >> you can't say it is very high. >> well, when the president says if you pass my jobs bill and my stimulus plan that unemployment would be 5.4%, arthel, that's high. to get back to what i sac weighing about the ballot initiatives, if you look at the initiatives that would push them and dealing with increasing government spending and increasing taxes. that goes to mitt romney's platform. >> all right. ryan, let me talk to you right now. we know th
out there are typically democratic blue-collar working-class men and women, roman catholic in religion -- certainly not all of them, and pro-union. these were the quintessential reagan democrats. they were in counties adjacent to pittsburgh like beaver and westmorland and washington and corrine and further to the east -- kim-shree and fayette. those counties have a propensity to vote republican, particularly in the elections. they are culturally conservative, pro-gun, pro-life, not particularly fond of gay- rights. then think of pennsylvania, draw a big t up the center of the state, fanned out across the new york border, not quite getting to erie or the northeastern part of the state, the big t -- that is the conservative area of the state. basically white, protestant, does not have a definable ethnic group in particular. once you get east of the susquehanna river, with the exception of a few counties, the demography changed sharply. let's get down to southeast -- philadelphia, heavily democratic -- democratic, but the suburban counties, and montgomery, chester, delaware, the swing tow
over." >> khan: yeah, yeah, and he's absolutely right. i think it's not religion itself. i mean, it's the baggage that comes with it, frankly, that's in the name of religion, people are doing horrible things. >> pitts: and in the pakistan of your youth, you could... whatever your faith was was acceptable. >> khan: absolutely, and not only was it acceptable, it was respected. >> pitts: the man who grew up on cricket in pakistan says his passion for american football began at the university of illinois, cheering on the fighting illini. with financial success came the opportunity to buy into the game at the highest level. khan says he leaves the football side of the business to others, but expects the best from his players. so one of his first moves was to provide them with what's said to be the best locker room in the nfl. >> khan: this is about comfort. this is about recognition. this is about setting standards. >> pitts: and in a strategy he hopes will pay dividends for the team and jacksonville, he announced plans for the jaguars to play one home game in london for the next four se
to it. i think that relation, not just the catholic church, but faith and religion are misrepresented in the major media. first of all, you can present your own opinion on fact, as fact, because why? as long as you're talking about religion, religion is totally subjective and the not based on any truth, no matter what you say, it's okay. what's an example of that? this last week, bill collar of the new york times wrote an article how to die, it was all about end of life care. the suggestions he made was that the reason we're not able to, as a society, get to a point in which our loved ones can die peacefully is because the catholic church would never allow such practices to occur. meaning what? a suggestion that the catholic church would require a family member to go to extreme means to keep somebody who is dying alive. it's simply not the truth. but, nobody stands up to it because you know what? as long as you're talking about religion, as long as you can offer any opinion you want and pass it as fact because religion itself is purely subjective. >> clayton: what about during the vic
protector of freedom of religion and speech after making that movie. i saw how some of the family and kids were ridiculed. thank god it wasn't today because it was really pre-twitter and all of that. i was really alarmed by some reactions to be honest with you. we hadn't really expected that. host: what documentaries? what's the motivation? how much of it is a business versus you just like this medium? guest: it's a terrible business to be in. if i was financially motivated, i would be doing something like reality television, god forbid. no one gets into documentary motivated by the business allure or the financial allure. although, we do make a fine living at it. but, really, it's rachael and my co-director and i, we share an incredible curiosity to learn and it's incredible gift that we're giving to be able to pick up the phone, knock on someone's door, go to someone's community and say hi. please talk to me because i'm trying to tell this story. we ended up meeting people and experiencing things that most people never will. we never would. part of it's a little bit selfish because you
of this campaign without having a heated discussion on race or mormonism or mitt romney's religion, which also a lot of people have issues with. and i almost hope that we get -- we're that close to november 6th. let's get there without this kind of poison becoming part of the political discourse this late on. >> yeah. listen, this is -- >> this isn't something that's being introduced. it's always been there. because we haven't talked about it doesn't mean it isn't there. just means we haven't talked about it. >> i'll say this, when people say there's no evidence that, like lz says, what are you going to believe? me or your lying ears or your lying eyes. you hear things. you know what the insinuations are and then you wonder as i said to you, why put him out there and why after he says a number of crazy things -- and he's not the only one. you don't need a misstep at this point. that is a question. he obviously speaks to some people in the republican party who mitt romney and paul ryan want to go to the voting booths. and that's why he's there continuing to say it. we'll move on. it's a great c
to their guns and religion, the kind of white working-class workers that the president is having the most trouble connecting with. the obama campaign is advertising as well. they have a turnout machine in philadelphia. pacs don't want the obama campaign to gin up their turnout machine. i think that machine will start to get engaged and that machine will drive president obama's margin down there. that's in southeastern pennsylvania. host: we're talking about an october surprise in campaign 2012 and the history of it. this on twitter -- guest: she's probably right. many people aboard a voted. there is 1 weeks ago. the average american is paying attention to something other than politics, whether it's their own economic situation or recovering from storm damage in a swing state like virginia or new hampshire. -- many people have voted already. ballistics of trying to get around the place after a storm can be a real problem -- the logistics. it's not like either of these guys will have a game changer. the next couple days will be focused on not doing something stupid around the hurricane and
interference, without pressure, without political interference. that's their role in that religion. in iran, they see a challenge to the legitimacy of the oversight of that. it's a governance issue. it's not a sunni shia issue. and with iran's government, d.c. essentially death by 1000 razor cuts as iran has a coherent strategy for destabilization in the region, starting in baghdad, extends to damascus. hamas, muslim brotherhood and yemen, bahrain, the eastern province, wherever they can take an issue and turn it into a sectarian issue, that is the strategy that they see that iran is pursuing. so he ran as a very real threat to them. it's the existential threat in the region. >> thank you, mr. ambassador for enlightening us in this opening session of the second day of his 21st annual comp trends of u.s. policy issues. [applause] >> next we have a relative newcomer to the annual forums in the sands of the new league of arab states chief representative ambassador to the united states. i've known each one of them for the last almost half-century and each one of them brings to the cars in the t
in iowa. the issue of romney's religion is an issue i raised with him when he ran a pull your years ago and its initial history sensitive about man does not like to talk about. iowa republicans are dominated by evangelical christians. they are a bit leery of mormons. they don't understand it. they don't like to talk about it. no one will say i am not excited about mitt romney because he's a mormon, but they are aware of it. so that is an issue. it goes more to not whether someone will support mitt romney or not support mitt romney but the enthusiasm level they will bring the campaign. that diminishes it just a bit. so that's an issue. if you look at how the campaign plays out, i think that will be one of the majoridin fas this ectionwhich i thk is very cl and that is the enthusiasm level that each candidate can bring to the game. can mitt romney excite the republican base, which is largely evangelical christians in iowa? can barack obama excite the democratic base? he has a challen to excite voters in certain parts of the state. i think he has an edge because the democratic base is ki
he was born in a different country, like lots of other things that he said even questions on religion, i wonder -- if certain things were there, especially of course, born in a different place, then he said, which is a possibility, that would make the presidency a sham. i hope that we wouldn't find that. i would like to give the money and have those records be perfect. now, somebody said, you could offer a billion dollars and he wouldn't give the records because the records are so wrong and so terrible. i don't know that to be a fact. he has until wednesday at 5:00 o'clock to give his records. if he gives the records, $5 million to a charity of his choice. >> steve: donald trump, before you go, on a scale of one to ten what, are the odds that he'll do that before then? >> i don't want to say that. this is a serious offer. as i told you, it has tremendous momentum. you know when i was doing david letterman, one of the things he said, well, do you think he was born in this country? and i said, i really don't know. i can't answer that. i can't answer. that what about you you, i probably
catholic in religion. certainly not all of them, and pro-union. these, steve, are the quintessential reagan democrats. and they would be in counties adjacent to pittsburgh like beaver and westmoreland and washington and greene and further to the east cambria and fayette. of late those counties have a propensity to vote republican particularly in big elections. they are culturally conservative, pro-gun, pro-life, not particularly fond of gay rights. then if you think of pennsylvania and draw, and draw a big t up the center of the state and fan out across the new york border, not quite getting to erie and not quite getting to the northeastern part of the state, just a big t, that's the conservative blue area of the state. it's basically white, it's protestant, it doesn't have a definable ethnic group particularly. once you get east of the susquehanna river with the exception of a few counties, the demography changes sharply. let's go down to the southeast, philadelphia heavily democratic. but the four suburban ring counties, bucks, montgomery, chester and delaware, are the swing counties. two
